I agree with this.
When you are trying to finish the fight, and the guy is still conscious, there is no way he wont try to get away. I think the difference in that fight was that swick was really hammerfisting, NOT DOWN, but on the side, and Goulet was moving, so a few shots maybe got in on top, but really, Goulet was out already. I liked the fact that the ref let Goulet a chance to get out, because i really thought he was going in for the takedown and maybe catch a break.. but i guess they dont call him quick Swick for nothing.
